The details of the processing operations within the Services, and the categories of personal data, are specified in the Agreement. If and to the extent language in these Terms conflicts with the Agreement, these Terms shall control.
    7. “Purpose” means the purpose of processing of personal data in connection with the Services, as described in the Agreement (or as otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties), but in any case, solely for the benefit of Supercell and not the Consultant or any third party.

  2. Relationship of the Parties:
    1. Supercell (the controller) appoints the Consultant as a processor to process Supercell Data for the Purpose. Consultant will act as a "Service Provider" as the term is defined in the CCPA. Neither Consultant nor its subcontractors shall sell, rent, release, disclose, disseminate, make available, transfer, or otherwise communicate orally, in writing, or by electronic or other means, Supercell Data to any third party in a way that would constitute "selling" as the term is defined by the CCPA. Each Party shall comply with the obligations that apply to it under Applicable Data Protection Law.

  4. Documented Instructions:
    1. Consultant and any subcontractors shall process Supercell Data solely for the Purpose of and to the extent necessary to provide the Services to Supercell in accordance with the Agreement, these Terms, and Data Protection Laws.

    1. The Consultant shall not transfer the Supercell Data (or allow the Supercell Data to be transferred) outside of the EEA or countries subject to adequacy decision of the European Commission under Article 45 of the GDPR without Supercell's prior written consent, which, without prejudice to Supercell's right to refuse or prescribe any other conditions, shall be conditional upon the Consultant ensuring, and demonstrating to the reasonable satisfaction of Supercell, that the conditions under Applicable Data Protection Law are satisfied.
    2. For this purpose, the Parties agree to be bound by the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) implemented by the European Commission implementing decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries pursuant to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the SCC will not apply if the Consultant has adopted Binding Corporate Rules for Processors or an alternative recognised compliance standard for the lawful transfer of personal data (as defined in the GDPR) outside the EEA.
